I’m especially proud to showcase a friend of mine from my home-sweet-home of Regina on The Rooster this month. Kristen Leigh is a Biology student at the University of Regina and the entreprenista behind Soulful Sandwiches. It’s a fitting name for a not-for-profit business steered by a woman with no shortage of soul and selflessness. Continue reading
It seems that The Kinfolk Table has been following me. Well, to be more specific, The Kinfolk Table has been streaming main line on all of my social media feeds for the past couple weeks, and I couldn’t be more happy about it. If you’re not in the know of the Kinfolk philosophy, get in the know. If of course the idea of community, shared thought, and good meals with friends is something you could get into. Continue reading

Well, I guess there’s a lot to say isn’t there. For, every heart skip I’ve ever fluttered has been because of you. When we met you taught me what it was to know butterflies, to be fearless with words, and to feel the rush of a rouge cheek. If it weren’t for you and moments that had lessons tangled in them, whether I wanted to learn them or not, I wouldn’t have met heartache, and I wouldn’t have learned that in time only love in love lost is all that heals. You teach me to be still, with a smile, a laugh, and sometimes a needed cry. And for every time I thought you had left, or that maybe you had never been at all, you cast a shadow even if it is my own and I can breathe. So, I guess what I am trying to say love, is that I love you. I love you endlessly, romantically, and always in a day-dream state of mind. I love you at midnight and at two in the afternoon. I love you selflessly, gently, and with a place to rest your head always. For dear love, without you I wouldn’t still count starts, twist apple cores, and believe in seeing you at first sight. Dear love, do not ever change, for you are my heart, a story I will never stop telling, and the only real thing I will ever need.
EDM-mania is raging across North America, and A Tribe Called Red’s timing is impeccable. It was only four years ago the Canadian DJ collective sat in rehearsal, mulling over how to open a dubstep instrumental with Aboriginal grass dance before inevitably smacking their heads. The BPMs of both tracks were nearly identical. That’s how “powwow step” was born. Continue reading
This is for all of you weekend warriors. We all know the mornings can be rough after a night out with your friends. It’s now 10am on Sunday and your phone is ringing. Your girls are calling for a day full of traipsing around the city. Or maybe, it’s your boyfriend calling to remind you that you’re having brunching an hour – with his mom, dad, cousins, his aunt from timbucktwo and little old grandma who always comments on your skirt length. No matter what it is you have going on that hungover day, you wanna feel stylish, though you probably don’t have the effort to pick out an outfit. Your head is pounding and you’re staring at your closet and would rather wear a potato sack than have to squeeze into a stiff dress with your hair pulled back for the day. That’s where this post comes in. Look ultra fab and still be cozy. Be stylish with a small amount of effort. Continue reading
“The mega-city is a reality and it looks a lot like the visions of science fiction films.” Seriously, it is creepy to think how classics like Soylent Green or Blade Runner prophesized overpopulation and urban chaos in the future – and now a new documentary is showing how these problems are now scarier than ever.

Wake Owl is dropping its first full-length album on March 4th and released the second song from The Private World of Paradise yesterday. Southern Californian Colyn Cameron is joined by multi-instrumentalist Aiden Bricoll and producer Richard Swift of The Shins to expand his evocative, folksy sound with a bigger more orchestral sound. Dusted with low-fi vibes, somehow his songs of loss of innocence and startling self-discovery have a sunniness and swagger to them. The perfect songs to listen to while waiting on the snow to start melting and anticipating spring, these two tastes will leave you eager for the whole album. Continue reading
